“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

The garden tour was part of the home tour. It was a cold, drizzly day but worth it to wander and see her lovely gardens.

“Interesting to see where she lived.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I had a wonderful docent give the tour. I felt like I gained more insight about Eudora Welty after seeing her home and garden. There was and excelled movie to see first . I would suggest the Spring Spring when the garden is blooming and the weather is not as sticky. Recommend a few of her books, looking at her photography and reading about her life and friends first.

“Great if you can handle the Cat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

There is a cat on the loose here so be brave and enjoy the sights but go inside and view the video. If you are a reader I would read her work first it makes it more interesting .

Great opportunity to walk where the Pulitzer Prize winner worked with her hands in the dirt to create such Southern beauty!

“Lovely garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Very pretty garden but you need to be there in April for all the flowers. Magnolia trees were still blooming and iris plants but that's about all.
